About

This Privacy Policy describes how Yurts Technologies, Inc. ("Yurts", “we", “us” or "our") processes personal information that we collect through our digital properties that link to this Privacy Policy, including our website (collectively, the “Service”), as well as through social media, our marketing activities, and other activities described in this Privacy Policy.  Yurts may provide additional or supplemental privacy policies to individuals depending upon the context at the time we collect personal information.

Yurts provides a comprehensive AI platform for its enterprise customers that modernizes enterprise knowledge and workflows. This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information, if any, that we may process on behalf of our enterprise customers (such as businesses, government entities, and other organizations) while providing the platform and other services to them. Our use of information that we process on behalf of our enterprise customers may be governed by our agreements with such customers. If you have questions regarding your personal information that we process on behalf of an enterprise customer, please direct your question to that enterprise customer.

We designed our websites, AI platform and services for enterprise customers and their representatives. We do not offer products or services for use by individuals for their personal, familial or household purposes. Accordingly, we treat all personal information that we collect as described in this Privacy Policy as pertaining to individuals in their capacities as representatives of the relevant enterprise and not their individual capacities.
